You’ve got Paul who takes you to the party, George who talks to you about God, John is just “No, it’s about love and pain” and then Ringo who just says “Hey, can’t we enjoy what we have while we have it?” – Ethan Hawke, Boyhood (2014)

The Beatles were never one of my favorite bands, never came across a song of theirs that appealed to me. But the words of Ethan Hawke in boyhood made me all curious about their music. A simple search brought me to the yellow submarine! something felt so annoyingly right about the song, Maybe because the image of a yellow submarine is very whimsical! almost like watching Spongebob square pants. childish yet trippy. This cardigan gave me another reason to go all trippy about the yellow submarine.

PS your not going to find this piece in the market. because I searched and searched and dug the whole world. Every time only 2 Ms would surface online. I finally picked up the M at the store on a 70% discount.

Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs – Susan Sontag

As kids, we run on certain assumptions. Assumptions that have never been corrected by fact because you had no reason to believe you could be wrong. Like this fav hand knitted sweater that’s been at home for as long as  I can remember. For many years I assumed that the sweater was my grandmother’s. When my mom wanted to give it away I picked it up and throw it to the bottom of my closet. occasionally it would surface when it get’s ridiculously cold. Like in the past few days the oceanic depression cause winter rains.

What better day than to wear it on the evening you wanna escape for a drive?

You know that mismatched outfit that just seems so right, and you feel really good about it when it’s the OOTD! well on the day of the shoot I was wondering what had gotten into me to wear this pairing? I guess I was missing the right attitude to get the wrong outfit work for today! P.S. I originally wore the outfit to a seminar being hosted on a Sunday.

When there is a twining effect with trends and traditions

Sometimes trends have overlapping effects. Just like when all those tunics with slits and maxis with high slits came into style and they were everywhere! nowadays the trend is to stick one leg out. Special thanks to Ciara who popularized it with her red carpet outfits and long legs. Well, right now I’m just a petite stout chic trying to adapt an international trend with a somewhat ethnic short kurta. Personally, I feel the style adaptation is a fail but the outfit for me is a pure comfort zone 😍 cotton tunic oversized shawl with sneakers and boyfriend jeans

Btw is that a union jack around my neck? I’d like to say no though the print is a grunge version of the flag. remember that time when the MOD culture adaptations were everywhere! yeah I just picked this one up because it was soft and no matter how you wear it, you probably will never see the flag

Sometimes you just have to escape.

Most of the times I love to be in the city but sometimes it’s just nice to get away from it. No! really this isn’t much of a getaway and we are still withing Bangalore city limits! In spite of the EXTRA large population, the city itself is still very small. This is a little of Sarjapur road, the city is still filled with farmlands. Sometimes you don’t have to go too far to find quite spaces. Just a car and a pointless direction. I’m never much for the boho trend but the softness of the suede just made it the perfect relaxed outfit I’ve worn in a while. Plus the oxidised silver necklace makes it an easy pairing with a lot of clothes.

Have a great week ahead!

Have a great Sunday!

So after my small line up (Click here ), I will continue the styling of my BF jeans for a bit longer Until I can convince myself to get rid of those jeans. Mostly after 5 years of working in uniforms, formals and bare essentials it feels good to style the casuals into something more stylish for everyday errands and work.

The outfit I’m wearing in today’s post is a plain tee mostly. I wear that tee mostly for the colour, full sleeves and the feeling of being snuggled inside blankets. Yes! I don’t need blankets to feel cosy in everyday dressing. I have this tee in 4 different colours. This one’s always my favourite. The pairing of necklaces was an absolute delight. I heard it somewhere pain is a path to just more pleasure! And so the Skull and heart together. Simple ways to create your own layered necklace.

Oh k! let’s go through the last 5 posts about boyfriend jeans and do a line up.

The boyfriend jeans I chose was just a small bit distressed and patch dyed (random Ombre affect I guess). None the less I have to say I’ve been in loose clothes mostly because I’ve grown fat! Every time I start to loose weight I seem to fall sick n grow fat again. But I still prefer looser fits to the skin hugging clothes ( Is there any term for skin suffocation?!! ) I’m not a big fan of skinny jeans except when I was skinny.

I’m going to do this line up in a reverse order from the one I love to my all time favourite. Honestly, I love them all but based on feedback I changed my mind to and fro about the outfits 😛

5. #2 The choice

Dematrix 2scription: Black overlap asymmetric pullover with a black cami and kitten heels.

Category: Basic casual

This is something I’d wear to go on a walk down the street. I wore it for a weekend lunch at a neighbours house. I wore it to post office, grocery store and to the doctor’s appointment. The outfit is one of those everyday wearables that will still have you stand out in the crowd.  So It’s not a big deal and takes the bottom spot.

4. #5 love is not a battlefield

IMG_1282Description: Military jacket with peach tee and layered chains and boots

Category: Road trip casuals

I was watching the song CLOSE by Nick Jonas feat Tove Lo on loop when I decided to pull out my military jacket. Off late, road trips a few kilometers out of the city have become a thing with my weekends. It is a perfect travel outfit with the boots to protect your feet and the jacket to keep you warm. I’ve owned that jacket for almost 10 years. It spent most of its life sitting in the back seat of my car because Bangalore has unpredictable weather and very prone to rains. It is my car buddy jacket especially when I drove home late nights from work.

3. #3 Let’s adult up a bit

adult 3Description: Green floral block printed khadi jacket with a magenta cami and nude pumps.

Category: Semi Formal

As A fashion consultant, I’ve spent a lot of time dealing with perceptions and altering them. But the jacket is a classic And I’ve worn it a few times on social must attend with friends excuse to have a good time. Like the lunch at The Catholic club on independence day and the jacket was complimented by everyone around, young and old alike. If I were to list my favourite based on the image alone this would be my #1. The jacket is a perfect add on for work and social wears

2. #4 Feels like an evil queen

warrior princess 4Description: spear head necklace with Bardot top, oxblood clutch, and golden zipper boots.

Category: occasion specific

I have to say when I posted the outfit at the beginning of last month. It did end up getting the most number of responses and the only reason it made me very happy. For an average person, the necklace would be a massive statement the to make. Typically I would call this a perfect outfit for a night out but since I’m not a night out kind of person, I would say It’s perfect for any gathering when you want to stand out in the crowd. Every time I look at it I feel like a rebel princess or evil queen about to punch you in the face and sometimes it feels like an in between Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

1. #1 The perfect find

meghan trainor no 1Description: White jacket, yellow tee, white sneakers and a big ring

Category: Everyday work wear casual

Yes! I know this is not typical work wear to Office but it is for me. Truth is I grew up in Bangalore and the city was very known for the jeans culture (It is appropriate to wear jeans everywhere and anywhere! ) The large working class population makes denims the perfect weekend outfit.This works for me because when I’m not at my desk, I’m shuffling meetings and random shopping rounds the Jacket gives a feel good effect and the sneakers give my feet the required comfort, Because walking in the city of gardens is still a delight in Bangalore and the city’s new and improved footpaths just made my walk easier.

Cause space was just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get close

Never considered Nick Jonas much of a singer. But close is the only song that has made me ever made me look at him as an artist! The song had me play the youtube video on loop at times, also the video convinced me to pull out my military jacket from the closet. I know I wear a lot of blacks but I couldn’t get myself to wear the black tee with this jacket, although it would have created a classic military style outfit. But the combat boots and military jacket together created too much a brutal strength in the outfit and the orange bought a pleasant bit of sunshine to the outfit.

Let’s face it we are teaching our young kids that love is a battlefield even before they experience love for themselves. Yet,I have to say Tove lo sings the best part in the song.

[Tove Lo:]
Oh man, oh man
I am not really known forever being speechless
But now, but now somehow
My words roll off my tongue right onto your lips, oh
I’m keeping cool while you keep smiling
Saying all the things I’m thinking
Oh man, oh man

Winter is coming!

OK, this isn’t about your favourite episode of Game of thrones. But for real, the winter season is about to start, and August is the mark of the beginning of the cold season. I know a lot of you are going to say what’s wrong with this girl? Winter is December, January, and Feb. So for all of you who don’t live in Bangalore (FYI we get 3 months of scorching summer) it’s just freezing cold especially when it rains. Winter is the best time of the year to play dress up and the best of styles to come out. The best-tailored outfits, multiple layers, warm shoes and all the accessories to dress up the clothes.

So just before all the warm layer of clothes start coming out of my closet would like to indulge in a strong summer outfit. Don’t worry the layering is on it way. But I have to say, every time I look at the necklace It makes me feel like a strong and mighty queen, maybe even a bit evil. Like Jadis, the white Witch, Cersei Lannister, at times even Abaddon (of course she never had a crown 😉 but evil enough I guess)

The great and mighty August is here, Let’s start preparing for winter.
